Tata Steel to raise U.K. plant capacity

Tata Steel’s plant at Teesside, U.K., is looking to surpass its nominal 1.70 lakh tonnes per annum capacity to support increasing demand.

A statement from the company said Teesside Service Centre, at Redcar, which is next to the Beam Mill, is the only steel sections processing facility in the U.K. backed up by an adjacent production capability.

Tata Steel has invested a total of 8.5 million pounds in the centre that has a warehouse and a modern stocking facility. Its products, including structural hollow sections, serve a wide range of construction and infrastructure projects.

The centre was established in 2012 and employs 94 people. It is responsible for managing and distributing steel from the Teesside Beam Mill, as well as Tata Steel’s sections mill in Scunthorpe, North Lincolnshire, and the tube mills in Corby, Northamptonshire.

“We have established Teesside Service Centre to be able to offer customers a uniquely flexible service,” Ian Beveridge, Director, Construction Structures, Tata Steel, said in a statement. “Furthermore, the investment we have made in logistics, new handling and processing equipment mean we are able to offer a product and delivery service with unrivalled speed and efficiency. That all adds up to Teesside Service Centre being the leading distribution facility in the U.K. and the benchmark in our industry.”

According to the company, the latest developments have involved opening up another warehouse and installing a high-specification shot-blaster and new heavy sections sawing capacity.
